Central Texas PaperbackSwap Meetup & Swap

  • Apr 3, 2013 · 6:00 PM
  • Central Market Cafe

Most of you know the drill, but we have some new folks, so here's it is: Bring books that need a new home. Take books that want to come home with you. Eat good food at Central Market Cafe. Have great conversation ranging from books to anything else you can think of. If you're looking for a particular book or books, post it to your RSVP in case someone has it on their bookshelf and might bring it with them especially for you. We're not real regimented - the books are all thrown on the table(s), we all look them over, if we have a question we ask it and whoever brought the book can answer (and anyone else who read it might jump in, as well). First come first served is the order of the day - so don't be late! We will be at Central Market Cafe, but we might be downstairs, we might be upstairs, we might be outside - it all depends on how busy it is and where there's a large enough table or tables when I get there. Look for a table with a bunch of books on it (I usually bring 9 or 10 to get things started and as more people come, the stack can get pretty big) and the Meetup sign. If you get lost, call me at[masked] and I'll let you know where we are.

    I Give Up! The fates are against me.... Can not come once again. Spent the better part of the day in the ER because I stepped on a rusty nail. Have a pretty new blue boot but have to stay off of it for a few days I stepped on it on the outer side of the foot (They can not figure out how) and every time I take a step it bleeds once again. UGH! Leave it to me!

    Found out about this group two months ago and so far I can not make it. Have books and bookmarks ready to share. Wish me luck for next month! Your new book friend's at some point (Smile)

      Sometimes we're are done before 7:30 pm, but almost always within a few minutes after that time...depends on the number of people and number of books! Hope you can come earlier.

      We were done, as almost always, well before 7:30. The start time is 6:00, and we're usually done by 7:00.
